Effects of Humor On The Test Performance of Elementary School Children
Terry, Roger L.; Woods, Margaret E.
Psychology in the Schools, 12, 2, 182-185, Apr 75
The effect of humor in the classroom was explored by comparing the performance of third and fifth grade students who worked on a humorous test with that of students who worked on a nonhumorous test. Humor depressed third graders' performance but had positive and negative effects on fifth graders' performance. (Author)
